PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A new year, and another new episode of “The Holy War.”

On Friday, Jesuit will head to Central Catholic for the third meeting between these two teams in the last 366 days, highlighting our Friday night Game On! coverage as the KOIN 6 Blitz Game of the Week.

Let’s take a deeper look at the Jesuit vs. Central Catholic game, as well as the other matchups that will be featured on the KOIN 6 Blitz.

Jesuit vs. Oregon City (7:00 p.m., at Gresham High School)

Jesuit got a 56-19 win against Central Catholic in week 2 last year, but it was the Rams who got the last laugh. Central Catholic pulled off the upset in the quarterfinals, beating Jesuit 21-9 en route to an appearance in the 6A state championship game.

There was one major difference between last year’s two games: Trey Lowe, one of the top players in the country and the KOIN 6 Blitz player of the week in week one, was hurt and didn’t play. That won’t be the case this time. Lowe, who’s headed to Washington next year, started off his senior campaign strong, carrying the ball 24 times for 248 yards and 5 touchdowns in an overtime win over Tigard.

Central Catholic fell to Camas 35-13 last week. The Rams got a touchdown run from sophomore Miles Jackson, who’s shaping up to be a prospect to watch in the 2020 recruiting class.

We’ll have live highlights on Twitter and online. We’ll also have highlights from the game on the KOIN 6 Blitz at 11.

Watch below the highlights from last year’s quarter final playoff game between Jesuit and Central Catholic.
